Your setup is way too complicated. Why not start simple and then add thing AFTER the simple setup works ?
1.) "we use addresses from the 10.1.1.0/24 private subnet"
Is that an actual existing subnet ?
Or you just misunderstood how TUN IP settings work ?
2.) "server is using external script to set up the tun0 tunnel"
WHAT external script ?
Also ifconfig and route output would help understanding the problem.
With a friend we decided to try openvpn just for the fun. After a
certain amount of time spent in struggling with it we managed to set it
up using pam-module for authentication with no certificates. We are
terminating the tunnel successfully. But the problem is that we cannot
ping each other nor can we reach each other's ends. Here is the config
file ot the client(windows xp sp2 machine, using openvpn 2.0.9):
remote 220.127.116.11 1194
ifconfig 10.1.1.2 10.1.1.1
As you can see we use addresses from the 10.1.1.0/24 private subnet.
Here is the config of the server(gentoo machine, running openvpn 2.0.6):
keepalive 10 120
plugin /usr/lib/openvpn/openvpn-auth-pam.so system-auth
The server is using external script to set up the tun0 tunnel, somewhere
in the documentation it was written that this is better.
The openvpn server machine has http server running and I cannot access
it either. Actually there is not traffic across the tunnel. We have the
appropriate routing entries in one another's routing tables. We even
tried using the client-config-dir with route/iroute setting but had no
luck with it.
I'll be glad to hear your suggestions and probable solutions to the
